I don't know what is happening but all of a sudden im writing a blog, post or page and my computer shuts off. It has been doing this for a couple of weeks now. It didn't bother me before but now it is interrupting my work.

When I turn the pc back on, I can restore my pages but not the writing.

Can any techs out there help me to understand what is going on??? PLEASE

I don't know what kind of anti virus software you have, here is what I suggest you do download rkill

rkill is a program that won't kill viruses, but it will stop it from spreading.
then run malwarebytes

you should always have a registry cleaner to clean out all that junk we accumulate from the net. Advance system care.

all these programs are free to use. if your using norton this program slows down your computer like a snail. I hope this helps you, and If you're still having a problem I have some other suggestions. I'm pretty good with computers. I also suggest you clean your computer regularly because you wouldn't believe how quickly info adds up in your system. I really hope this helps you tho. Evelyn

Thanks Evelyn. So the norton can be slowing the computer down? and as far as the cleaning it's suppose to be swept every month on schedule. Should I uninstall the norton?
I be so scared when dealing with computers..lol

That is entirely up to you. I'm not fan of norton. I have had it before and my computer ran so slow. For me, I have a need for speed. haha I sometime think norton over protects. You can do this, run rkill and then scan your computer with norton on safe mode. If you like norton keep it. try that and see what happens. Do you know how to get to safe mode?

Norton is hole where a lot of computing power is sucked into leaving less power for day to day tasks..

Until you get an answer, consider writing you content in Word or Open Office (free) and transferring when ready. These programs will save what you have when the computer goes down.

Thank you for the response and advice.

A page or post has an auto save feature which auto saves when you do something other than editing. It is highly advisable to click on the preview bottom once in a while.

My notebook has done this when it has over heated. Is your fan working?
I'm not a techy. If you can edit your question add computer problem to the title that may help get a tech savvy person to walk you through it.
